Health Insurance Organizations

One result of the expansion of healthcare offerings in the United States is the ongoing rise in associated costs. Perhaps it’s no wonder, then, that insurance companies and health maintenance organizations continue to grow. With that expansion comes another career avenue for healthcare administration graduates to consider.

Some of the job titles in this sector are research analyst, utilization manager, quality improvement coordinator, client manager and director of strategic planning.

Some healthcare administration program graduates decide to address health-related issues on a broader scale by finding jobs with either government organizations, such as the Centers for Disease Control at the federal level or a state public health agency, or nonprofits with health-oriented missions.

Job titles in this sector include: communications director, legislative assistant, policy analyst, community healthcare organizer and health planner.
